Do you have to grind the studs on H&R spacers?

The title says it all. Looking to install some I just ordered. Didn't know if they would fit well, or if I would need to do some grinding.

I have the 10mm spacers and they fit just fine with the muteki close ended lug nuts. No grinding necessary for me.

Are you talking about the Trak + one where its bolted on or just the dsr where you slap on the extended studs.

I’m using the H&R 10mm spacers. They have extended studs that I replaced the stock studs with.
You didint have to grind the back to pop the oem ones out did you?
Not OP but would love some asnwers for myself.
Because i saw the trak+ one and they have studs already attached to the piece in which it bolts onto the rotor but you might have to file the originial studs down 🤷‍♂️

I didn’t grind anything. Just used a hammer to tap out the old studs and installed the new studs.

I have the 10mm spacers on my car as well. everything is direct replacement, no grinding necessary. UNLESS you have a big brake kit on the front, which you will have to bevel the hub for the spacer to go back enough to fit the thinner aluminum rotor hats. If you have a big brake kit do this before you install the new studs, unfortunately for me I didn't know so i had to grind the hub with the new studs installed.
